Sara-Lynne Dewar

From a young age, Ms. Sara-Lynne loved to dance! She participated in ballet classes from age four and continued to learn other dance styles as she travelled internationally. Upon returning to Canada, she continued her studies to teach ballet.

In 2004, Ballet Classique Methusela opened with a vision to provide dance to all who loved the art no matter their ability, age or limitations. Through Ballet Classique, Ms. Sara-Lynne strives to create an environment where students are challenged and the highest levels of technical accuracy is maintained without compromising the natural joy of movement and dance. Ms. Sara-Lynne is entering her seventh year as Calgary co-ordinator and rehearsal instructor for the Moscow Ballet.
